I applaud anyone who is willing to devote the time and energy to such an endeavor,since the results are so subjective that part is mostly irrelevant.It took me the better part of two years(and I'm retired with my time being my own) to cover 68'-79' and the lions share of 80'-85' and I would imagine the only person the information is of real value to is myself,but it sure was a fun and interesting project.

it's all subjective, the value is the knowledge of the reviewer, I would say that there are several grateful dead "authorities" (for lack of a better term)on this forum, whose opinions I would value as much as a highly regarded scotch reviewer or a restaurant critic or a consumer reports writer, etc....Cliff Hucker on E72 is a perfect example

I was really addressing Mando's "the rock throwing may begin now" comment in that the most important part of the undertaking was to enjoy the listening and learning part of the project,since it is so subjective half the people will probably disagree with your conclusions.Naturally I agree with some opinions of some people here on the forum also,Cliff was a great poster,but I certainly heard and formulated my own opinion on the Europe shows prior to his reviews and didn't change my view of the shows after reading how he felt about them.

I would hope that people can make their own opinions, a review list like cliff's make for a good resource and maybe bring your attention to something that you may have otherwise overlooked...I won't have the time or inclination to listen to all the 84 shows, but perhaps i will check out something based on mandos year in review...

While Cliff's list was excellent,packed with insight and factual information I disagreed with a number of his conclusions to varying degrees,so in actuality as far as how good some versions are his list would not have been a good resource for me.Once again this is all very subjective,even in the way you come to learn about it.I can see where a recommendation might be helpful if you haven't heard something,but I listened to most everything I would have an interest in and thus formed my own opinion.I listen to peoples rec's on post 85' material on occasion.
